Ultra-Low Cost, Pure DHA Production for World Nutrition

Geoffrey von Maltzahn of Essentient Inc. in the U.S. proposes to design a solar-powered production system to produce pure DHA, a key lipid for infant nutrition, in a low-cost bioreactor. These cell cultures could be used to mass-produce DHA for infant nutrition and development without the need for land or fresh water.
